1:34pm–#Stratford CT–An oil truck from Derby rolled his oil truck on Broadbridge Avenue at the Second Hill Avenue intersection.  This was a single vehicle accident and it appeared the truck hit the curb just at the intersection possibly causing the truck to roll.  Upon impact with the road a stress crack appeared on one of the welds on the truck.  About 100 gallons of oil did go down the drain and the Fairfield Hazardous Waste Team was called in.  Approximately 2,000 gallons of oil needs to be drained from the truck before they attempt to upright the truck.  Expect the area to be closed at least until 5pm if not later.
